    Why do carbs make you gain fat?

    I have a basic understanding of carbs. I know that we need them for energy, glycogen. However, why do they promote fat gain? People on low carb diets who workout isnt that very stressful and bad for the muscles?

    Anyways any info and link would be appreciated.

    Also If someone could explain the difference between complex and simple carbs would be great as well.
